A historic Orthodox Christian monastery Kiev Pechersk Lavra.
Almost a thousand years ago, the Dnieper Jerusalem was destined to become the spirit that gave birth to the Pechersk Lavra. This is where the powerful monasticism of the Kievan Rus rose and where the incorruptible relics of more than a hundred saints rest starting from the first centuries after the Christianization of the country.
There is no other such place on the planet with so many relics as Lavra
And it all began in 1051, when the monk Anthony settled here in the old cave, which he and other monks later expanded. Today this underground space is a part of the Far Caves.
The territory of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra is about 30 hectares and it is surrounded by secrets and legends. More than 50 million people from all over the world have visited Kiev Pechersk Lavra. It’s a powerful spiritual landmark, the most honored Orthodox church in Eastern Europe and it is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So, according to this, Lavra Monastery is №1 in our must-see list.
